Pisa Range Run 245 Pinot Noir 2019

  • Pinot Noir
  • New Zealand, 750ml

"Bright, ruby-red with good transparency, lighter edged. The nose is gently full and voluminous, filled the glass with dark cherries and blackberries, earth, interweave dried thyme, black pepper. The palate is medium-bodied, elegantly presented, aromas of dark cherries, blackberries are fragrant, intermix a hint of dark plums, thyme meadow, black pepper, unfolding black tea fragrance, subtle earthy savouriness. Supple, powdery tannin lightly coated the palate; silky thread knitted with lacy acidity, elegantly flow to a sustained pleasing finish. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with dark fruit, earth and silky tannin structure, over delivered on all levels." Candice Chow

Run 245 was the pastural tenure number given to the land at Pisa in 1866.

"This 2019 vintage was matured for nine months in French oak barriques. Deep ruby, it is mouth-filling and sweet-fruited, with good concentration of youthful, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and supple, finely balanced tannins." Michael Cooper

Established in 1995 and located at in the Pisa district, (10 km north of Cromwell, Central Otago) it has proved to be one of the best areas in the Cromwell Basin for premium grape production. The combination of high growing degree days, cool nights, and Waenga loam soils, consistently produces award winning wines. Minimal intervention has been the Hawker family's guiding principle in the management of the land and in the winery. The aim is for Pisa wines to express their ‘sense of place’. The ‘Black Poplar Block’ Pinot Noir – rated as a New Zealand ‘Classic’ – is Pisa's signature wine crafted from the oldest vines. Their inaugural Riesling was launched with the 2012 vintage, produced from vines with an average age of around 8 years. Pisa Range Estate has relocated to a new site and they are now working on the next chapter of the Pisa Range Estate story. They continue to supply wine produced from the historical site.
